Whenever I see that forelock straight cut, I think of the Three Stooges, one of them, Moe I think, had the same haircut.

I told you about my dad doing this to my mare right??? Lol

I would cut it to a point like the others said.

Did that with my mare and then braided it with MTG every other week. Took her awhile but its grown almost back out.

Be glad he doesn't have a fro like my boy Charlie lol if that ever happened to Charlie his forelock would just stick straight up like an afro spartan helmet

Hate to tell you but this makes a nice braid, especially if the horse had been shown in English classes.

Thanks for all your help, guys!! :)

I'll give your advice a go this evening and report back. *fingers crossed*
If it doesn't work out, hey, these things grow back. He's still my pretty boy no matter how dorky he looks. :)

I did the same blunt cut to our old mare a few weeks ago. She kept getting eye infections and I was sick of having to deal with them. She is now being called "M oe-garet" instead of Margaret. Her eyes look great and no amount of tisk tisking will convince me it was a bad idea.

Looks like the horse version of the old fashioned bowl cut. :)

I would agree with the thinning shears suggestions.
